Over the past week or so Ive been updating my rig after a fresh Win 7 64 bit install. One of the items I bought was an AMD Phenom II 965 Black Edition. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103727 I mean at first I knew it was going to be a nice upgrade, but I had no idea it was going to be this good. Right now I've got this thing running cool, and stable at 4000 Mhz. The kicker is, I'm on a budget so I had to use my old MOBO which is an Asus M3A79-EM... I mean this is old AM2+ DDR2 crap... Another nice feature is the multiplier is unlocked. At first I was having stability issues, but after searching around a bit I came across this nice setup leaving the Bus at 200 Mhz, then just bumping up the multiplier for the OC. What I ended up with was a 200 x 20 1.54v powerhouse, and all for 140 bucks. I'm still doing a few tests & tweaks , but this has to be the best CPU's I've ever owned.
